In the first year or so of Government Names, it was a very different site, and a lot of the best and most popular posts were written by Dylan King about Houston rap. He hasn't written here, or anywhere else, in a long time, but Complex Magazine just got him to write a great list of The 10 Best DJ Screw Mixtapes, so I figured I should throw a link up here to let old Gov't Names heads know.

I wrote on the City Paper website about Mack Scott's new EP, Still Mackin', which is pretty good and has kind of a Baltimore twist on southern pimp rap (there's even a screwed & chopped version). And dude just told me that his older brother is Mike Malachi, who I reviewed some music by years ago, small world.

The Baltimore City Paper's annual Big Music Issue is out this week, and I haven't read all the stories yet but it looks like a good one. I didn't do much for it besides my usual Short List concert calender and a Rap Sheet column, with news about Height With Friends, Street Scott, Wordsmith and Mic Life Magazine.
One cool thing that the City Paper crew did for this year's issue was the Big Baltimore Playlist, with unreleased tracks from over 100 local artists. They ended with so many submissions that they went ahead and threw a track from my band Western Blot on there. All the way at the end of side 4 of the Soundcloud playlist is our new song, "As Friends, As Lovers, As Co-Defendants," along with a lot of other great acts. Our next show is on Tuesday!
